ESL Methodology

 
  At Chiron Training Center we use a Task-Based approach to learning, which has proved to be very successful and effective.   Since we make communication, both oral and written, the central feature of language teaching, each lesson is thus aimed at the development of all language skills, such as speaking, listening, writing and reading.

Speaking


Chiron Training Center provides its students with a great amount of speaking practice incorporated into various role-play activities and tasks as well as small-group and whole-class discussions. Every student has an opportunity to speak during the lesson.  This approach helps students develop communication skills and adjust to an unfamiliar cultural background and promote multi-cultural sharing, that is so important for living in culturally diverse communities of the US.   We also encourage students to speak only English in class.

Grammar


We teach you how to grasp the function of English grammar patterns, rather than simply memorize them.   We use a discovery approach to studying grammar thereby helping you feel the logic of the language.   Grammar activities are also a part of our Task-Based approach that makes grammar a live functional system tightly bound to the context of real life.

Vocabulary


Acquisition of new lexical material is sometimes a problem for students.  At Chiron Training Center we appeal to your experience when teaching vocabulary, thus making the process more personalized and effective.   Our courses contain all the necessary vocabulary, including idioms, for operating in a English context.

Listening


Our listening program includes a course which is designed to help you understand fast speech by picking out key points and reconstructing the rest, to make a complete picture of your partner's speech.  We also use video components in our Listening tasks.

Reading


Our Standard Course includes tasks for developing effective reading skills - skills that help you grasp the main idea and key points of a text in a short time.

Writing


This component includes editing your own writing, logical composition and international layout standards.

Special Techniques


Special techniques include the enhancement of your concentration span, which makes evening lessons not tiresome at all.   Our lesson structure, which consists of different language aspects, won't bore you at all.  
Our tutors speak foreign languages, but we make a point of using only English in class even at lower levels, for this approach results in better language acquisition and fluency development.

Our Mission Statement:

To instruct students to such competency levels that they are qualified for initial employment
and/or career advancement.
